19 Nov 11 Rocket Mass Heater ( Does It Start Up Easily )

People have wondered if this heater is easy to start. Seeing is believing … and since some rocket heaters are problematic to get started, I tho’t I’d do a video which shows everything I to to get it started. I do NOT have a “pilot” area in my chimney, as some rocket heater owners have. Watch and see how easy it is for my heater to get started. ( see other videos of other details of this heater, including short under-ground exhaust and my 9′ chimney )

17 Nov 11 Haiti Cookstove Project

Oct. 27, 2011 Carbon Cycle 2.0 talk by Ashok Gadgil, Division Director, Environmental Energy Technologies co-presenting with Jennifer Jones and Kathleen Lask, EETD In January 2010, a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck near Port-au-Prince, Haiti, displacing hundreds of thousands of people. As Haitians primarily cook with inefficient charcoal stoves, cookstoves were an important avenue to pursue in the rebuilding effort. The Haiti Cookstove Project sought to provide an unbiased, independent assessment of a variety of charcoal stoves proposed for dissemination in Haiti.

15 Nov 11 Walkaround of the $120 greenhouse

This is a walk-around of the greenhouse I recently built in my back yard. So far, the cost has only been 0. Material cost was mainly 2×4’s and 1/2″ PVC piping. The wood planter bed I built out of wood I reclaimed from a house scheduled for demolition (with permission from the owner). I also acquired the fire bricks in that same home. The 55 gallon drum was surprisingly difficult to find, but eventually I hounded a nice elderly gentleman enough to charge me to take it and go away. Stovepipe was reclaimed from a central air upgrade on the house. It will all be covered with cob, used to store heat to release slowly at night. This way my Mr. Stripey tomatoes will stay nice and warm.
